So i told myself, even if some of the real long runs are missing, im gonna complete the Marathon training to my best abilities. This was supposed to be the last week and i kinda let the plan go, just carried on with the regime i got used to. Which meant more mileage than this weeks training runs should have been, except i did not do a 42 on sunday so i came rather short.
On the positive side, i did some muscle work again which i had somewhat abandoned in the past week or two.

It would have been... Instead we went to Bocholt:
11km in 55 min. The coolest run, 8am in the morning to the Aa, 3 times around and back home. Lovely sunny morning with lots of energy. Might have been a good day for the marathon... Its kinda difficult to let it go but at least i carried out the training relatively decently. And the next time around im really doing it. Maybe the Einstein Marathon in September?
